Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) railed against the upcoming vote on the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill as the latest guest on the Sara Carter Show. Originally the voting process was meant to begin Monday, but Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pushed it to Thursday when she split it from the reconciliation bill. Nunes says the bill is “what I call the socialist blowout program.”
“So on Thursday of this week, September 30, the government runs out of money,” Nunes said. “We’ve already hit our debt limit. So the debt limit has to be increased by the Congress if we’re going to keep borrowing and spending money.”
“We’ve seen this movie before,” Nunes said, alluding to 2009. “Obama said, ‘Oh my God, the economy’s cratering. It’s all Republicans’ and Bush’s fault. I need $800 billion. People may remember that $800 billion, because it led to the cash for clunkers and all types of corruption. Most importantly, that money was used to buy votes in the Congress that led to the passage of Obamacare.”
Meanwhile, in 2020 Congress already passed a $1.9 trillion COVID relief bill. But Speaker Pelosi says Republicans should feel “a responsibility to the country” to pass it.
“This is a big–beyond a big deal,” Pelosi said in a video Monday. “Let’s hope that the Republicans–find some–enough of them find some level of responibility to their country to honor what’s in the constitution that we not question the the full faith and credit of the United States. They know full well what the consequences are.”

Massachusetts Democrat Mayor wants to end ‘right-to-shelter’ law amidst migrant crisis
More Democrat leaders from non-border states are wising up to the immigration crisis our nation faces. Woburn mayor Scott Galvin, of the progressive state of Massachusetts, is hoping that lawmakers will overturn a 40-year-old law because the reality of being “bleeding heart liberals” is resulting in the demise of his town.
The 40-year-old “right-to-shelter” law has got to go, says mayor Galvin, because of the immense strain the thousands of migrant families are putting on the area’s residents. By Friday, there were about 150 families living in the city’s hotels, an “unsustainable” arrangement for his 40,000 constituents.
Galvin told the New York Times the right-to-shelter law, which only exists in Massachusetts, was “passed at a different time, and was not meant to cover what we’re seeing now.”
National Review reports:
Under the 1983 right-to-shelter law, Massachusetts officials are legally required to offer housing to any homeless families seeking shelter in the state. The law now covers a rising influx of migrant families, although individuals are not covered under its provisions.
“We’re going above and beyond, while some communities around us are not being impacted, and we don’t have endless capacity in our schools,” said Galvin. “The benefits that are bestowed on migrants make the state a very attractive destination, and without some changes, this challenge is not going to abate.”
Massachusetts Democrat Governor Maura Healey already declared a state of emergency on August 8th, requesting help from the federal government. On August 31, Healey activated up to 250 Massachusetts National Guard members to assist the more than 6,000 migrant families already in the state’s shelter system.
Approximately 6,300 families are living in emergency shelters and hotels across the state, up roughly 50 percent from the year prior. The cost for such accommodations for all the migrants is approximately $45 million per month, National Review reports.
